Pata Honda's Jonathan Rea had a new swingarm to try at the Motorland Aragon test which he says worked well but needs a little fine tuning with other chassis parts.
The swingarm, pictured below, is believed to have been created by an ex-Formula One designer and Rea says it functions nicely with the new 17in wheels that are mandatory in World Superbieks next year.
It was a little frustrating because we lost the first day and had to wait until late morning before we could get out on day two. We tried some new brake parts at the test and found an improvement in both consistency and performance, so that was positive," said the Irishman.
"The new swingarm worked OK with the new 17-inch wheels but we still need to do a bit of fine-tuning with some other new chassis parts that are coming. We have some other things to test at Jerez, plus the new electronics, which I’m looking forward to."
